Oil Splatter Burn Treatment


Though I'm a legitimate chef in my own rights, I  accept the fact that I have no inherent talent in frying! Hahah!  

One time, while frying chicken wings, the  extremely hot cooking oil splattered out of the pan hitting my right arm. Ouch!

What I did was to immediately pour cold water on the affected parts of my arm and applied beaten egg white on it. I remember having read an article saying that egg white is a natural collagen. But, please,  I'm just sharing, okay? Don't take it as gospel truth. I'm not really sure if it's just a myth, because I noticed that applying egg white didn't even give me any sensible relief at all. Anyway, to continue my story, I also applied extra virgin coconut oil days after to moisturize my skin. Plus, the classic sebo de macho, which is traditionally used by families here in the Philippines to treat scar.


Now, for purposes of this blog and for everyone's information,the right first aid  for oil splatter burn should be to run cool water over the burn for at least 15 minutes or until such time that the oil burn cools down. It is not advisable to put ice on your burn because chances are, you may damage the burn tissue. If you have burn cream, apply it on the affected areas. Therefore, may I also suggest that we keep burn cream in our homes. Finally, to prevent irritation and infection,cover the burn injury loosely (not too tight) with a clean gauze.


Days after and the pain from your oil splatter burn is gone, the next issue would be how to get rid of the oil splatter marks.

With our tropical climate here in the Philippines, it was so inconvenient for me to wear long sleeves all the time, just  to hide the marks. That's why, in my case, it was such a big deal that I had to make a research and used every remedy available for a week or so. In the end,disappointingly, the annoying  burn marks were still there.

Thank goodness that I remembered my friend Dr. Grin V Serenio-Tojino of Centre for Aesthetic Surgery and Vein Care.
Right away I messaged her and sought for her help. She then gave me a balm which she formulated herself and applied it on my marks for several days. I barely noticed the healing and realized one day that my skin tone got back to normal, without a trace of scar. This is how it looks like as I write this blog today:
